Guitar Amp Recording - New SOS Article

This months Sound on Sound magazine has a great article this month, where they have gone through a lot of interviews with various producers and try out their mic techniques for recording electric guitars. This article is wonderful because it looks like something I would want to try but I never have the time to do. There are quite a few of the audio samples online and I think its very educational:


The only thing I saw lacking was a nod towards Michael Wagener, who should have been part of this article, as his technique using only ribbons at extremely close range for heavy guitar is a little different from any of the other ways mentioned in the article.

My favorite clip for this particular example was the Joe Barresi one with two 57's (one on and one off axis), although I always tend to prefer the Royer 121 when I am recording myself.

I love it and everyone who hears it loves it and wants one. Unfortunately I have to be out of town for a few weeks and it's making me want to cry. I have a "mobile" studio but I have to use modeling while I am on the road. It's like eating salad every meal with no dressing.....

Have you tried one at the store yet?
